NHS Research Scotland Anaesthesia, Critical Care, and Perioperative Medicine Research Meeting

Date: 11/10/2022 to 12/10/2022 Venue: Stirling Court Hotel, Airthrey Road, Stirling, FK9 4LA

A multidisciplinary meeting catering for all research-active or research-interested clinicians, nurses and allied health practitioners (AHPs)

Anaesthetic, Perioperative Medicine and Critical Care research is in a strong place both in Scotland and the UK as a whole. Following the pandemic, where urgent public health research necessarily came to the fore, the non-COVID research portfolio is now recovering apace with many new studies coming to Scotland in the near future and actively seeking participating sites.

Join us in Stirling on 11 and 12 October for a review of where we’re at and where we’re going, a broad discussion of upcoming trials from leading chief investigators, trial methodology, some demystification of the research process and quality science.
